sry to hijack but lolwut? seriously? if you have received 0 mail from CLS you might be in the running for a named scholarship?


LOLWUT!!! Good question. I have an admissions index of 47 at Columbia and I applied in mid-December so yes I have a good chance at a named scholarship.

There's no way you're getting dinged and rejected by CLS. The worst that could is happen with your numbers is being waitlisted for yield protection, and I don't think they commonly do that.

there are a fair number of HLS admits who have not yet been admitted to CLS over on the CLS thread. i think CLS is not so organized, and you will all get in soon.

I'll be fine. I suspect I'll still be able to wrangle a sizeable amount of aid from C should I end up there, even if it isn't in the form of one of the named scholarships

Interesting.. thanks.. I'm curious if a non-URM 3.4 has ever received a JR1

I would imagine not, or I would imagine the soft factors would have to be unbelievable

You're definitely into CLS doublechecks.. my index is a little lower than yours and I just got the packet. Didn't even apply that early (After Sept.).

171 is "meh" :shock: :roll:


173 is "meh" for Harvard, just the way things work


This is depressing.

Had my JR1 today!

Just short of 8 minutes.

How long does it usually take to hear back?

I got a bit of the sense that he is getting tired of all these phone calls. Hopefully it wasn't just me....

I got held today!! *huge sigh of relief* I went complete early-mid November and freaked out because I hadn't heard back yet.

Okay... back to panicking about how to strengthen my app in a few hours...
